Online retail behemoth Amazon has announced that it is expanding its free Prime same-day delivery service to 11 new metro areas in the U.S. The areas are: Charlotte, Cincinnati, Fresno, Louisville, Milwaukee, Nashville, Raleigh, Richmond, Sacramento, Stockton, and Tucson, plus new areas in Central New Jersey, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, and San Diego. This brings the total of metro areas covered by same-day delivery to 27.
Prime members can place an order in the morning and receive all Same-Day orders over $35 before bedtime that very same day, seven days a week – even Sunday. With these newly added areas, Prime FREE Same-Day Delivery now serves 27 metro areas in the US, accounting for more than 1,000 cities and towns.
To take advantage of Prime next-day delivery, you will of course need to be an Amazon Prime member. A membership will set you back to the tune of $99 per year, but in addition to same-day delivery in the above mentioned areas, as well as free two-day delivery for other locations, members have access to unlimited streaming of tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes, more than one million songs and thousands of curated playlists and stations with Prime Music, early access to select Lightning Deals all year long, free secure, unlimited photo storage in Amazon Cloud Drive with Prime Photos and access to more than one million books to borrow with the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
